For property tax payment or balance inquiries, please contact the Santa Fe County Treasurer's Office
Santa Fe County is separated into four school/tax districts. The school districts are identified as: Moriarty, Santa Fe, Pojoaque, and Espanola. If you live in the Cities of Santa Fe and Espanola, you pay a mill rate to fund municipal operational and debt service while still inside the Santa Fe or Espanola school districts.
According to Article VIII, Section 1 of the New Mexico Constitution: "The percentage of values against which tax rates are assessed shall not exceed thirty-three and one third percent." All properties in Santa Fe County are taxed at a third of their market value. For example, a single residence assessed at $150,000 has a net taxable value of $50,000. Certain exemptions may be deducted from the taxable value. Please see our FAQ page for "Claiming of Exemptions."
The Santa Fe County Treasurer's Office, the property tax collector for the County of Santa Fe, now offers the option of paying taxes online with a credit or debit card. Residents may still pay by mail or deliver payments in person.
Notice: A convenience fee for these services. Currently the credit card processing fee is 2.35 percent per credit card transaction, and $3.95 for Visa Debit payments. Santa Fe County does not retain any portion of this fee. To avoid paying convenience fees you may pay taxes or other fees in person or by U.S. mail.
